Publix looks to hire more than 100 employees for Huntersville store

Publix is looking to hire more than 100 employees for the Huntersville store it plans to open this fall.

The Florida-based supermarket chain has set up a temporary hiring center through Wednesday at 104 Gilead Road, which used to be a police station.

New jobs include cashier, meat cutter and front service clerk, said Kim Reynolds, a spokesperson for Publix. The store plans to transfer managers from other locations.

Those interested can fill out an electronic application at the center from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hires will be announced about a month before the opening. No date has been set.

Publix operates 1,077 stores nationwide, with five in the Charlotte area. By the end of the year, Publix expects to have a total of nine locations in the region.

The Huntersville store will be located at 9815 Rose Commons Drive in the Market Square Plaza, in a location that was formerly a Bi-Lo.
